it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening in the last seven days when for the prior five or six months nothing h

classified information now at the center of the david patraeus scandal. the fbi confirms a classified document was found on the computer whil reporting that there is nothing to indicate that those documents in question came from patraeus. this is as we learn that sensitive, classified information aout the cia aniks in benghazi and the presee and captured libyan terrorists. the statement came during a speech at hurt, moderate, the university of denver on october 26. the cia flat at denies that any terrorists were held in benghazi. this ipart of that cia statemen reading in the suggestion that the agency is still in the detntionbusiness is unformed, and baseless. fox news is siding to sources in benghazi and a high level official in washington, off three of whom corroborate the statements about the holding of terrorists. coincidentally or not, that 26 ofoctober is the same ay that to journalists for foreign policy magazine discovered classied documents detailing security concerns in benghazi. they found those documents lying on the floor of what remained of the u.s. consulate. that, thr
. but there is some things that are absolutely stunning, that this happened on 9/11, and the fbi at some point was sent in to investigate. and then on october 26, 6 weeks later, foreign policy magazine went to the consulate, went to the cia annex. they found a draft of two letters. and letters that they have no idea thisf they were ever, ever sent anywhere. but a draft of two letters that the fbi never picked up when they were there. and two draft, talk about this fact that that day, they saw some member of the bolivian police force across the street in the upstairs, taking pictures inside the compound and they were worried and concerned. why that evidence was not seized by the fbi, i don't know. another thing that happened, david ignatius of the washington post, met with the cia. the cia gave them a timeline as to what happened. this is what is new for me. number 1, it appears that the last two who were killed were not killed until about 5:00 hirt in the morning, which fwaifs another hour for the -- which gives another hour for the united states to take military action. but secondly, let me r
is prohibited from finding out what the fbi is doing, maybe somebody needs to read the constitution, the fbi is part of the department of yesterday. they actually work for the president. there is a lot here in the way the administration has handled this that i think warrants further investigation as well. >> greta: how do people who think this is an important topic -- or many important topics, how do they convince those who say, well, it's just political? how do they convince people that these things really matter in. >> the most important point is remembering that with four dead americans on september 11, other official americans and american private citizens throughout the middle-east remain at risk. until we fully understand as a nation what happened on september 11, we can't possibly take adequate steps or formulate policies to protect americans who might be at risk. i have never seen this as political. maybe that's just because i used to work in the state department and see the risk that -- that our people have all around the world. but the notion that you can passively wait for an inte
the fbi uncovered his misdeeds. now the head of the senate intelligence committee telling fox news she was never told the head of the nation's top spy agency was in trouble. >> this is something that could have had an effect on national security. i think we should have been told. >> with petraeus gone from the cia will he ever get a full story about four americans murdered in libya. >> 3,000 miles away from washington in the mojave desert a sim poymbol of faith fox repo live from the site. and... americans honoring generations of veterans for keeping our freedom and liberty secure. >> i am harris falkner. on the behavior tonight that ended the career of general david petraeus. you may know by now petraeus admits he had an extra marital affair. we knew it involved e-mails questions of national security and a woman who was writing a book about him and now this just moments ago sources close to fox news and the petraeus family confirming to us a second woman was involved in the fbi investigation of his e-mails and she was in fact a close friend named jill kelly. that is her second from th
details about how fbi investigators stumbled on his affair and is the timing of his resignation add up? plus, who is paula broadwell? the woman at the center of the scandal? tonight, how she became so close with petraeus along with the warning signs that something may have been wrong. and an "outfront" investigation into complaints the red cross is not doing enough to help victims of sandy. are donations getting to the people who need them? let's go "outfront." good evening, everyone. tonight, a rescisky affair. there are new questions about the affair that led cia director david petraeus to resign and when did he pose a national security risk. here's what we can tell you now. the affair came to light during an fbi investigation of so-called jealousy e-mail sent by paula broadwell to a woman in tampa named jill kelley. an official confirms to cnn -- to stop sending harassing e-mails to kelley, who along with her husband has known petraeus and their family for more than five years. that couple met the four star general when he was stationed at medil air force base in tampa. a descriptio
the fbi, the cia, and the military and the nation spreads again. now, another general, another woman and a whole slew of new questions. general john allen accused of exchanging tens of thousands of pages of emails with a married woman. a senior official says those emails got a little flirty but general allen says he did nothing wrong. >> the president has great confidence in the military, great confidence in his commanders. >> shepard: tonight, an investigation threatens the career of another top leader. plus, president obama reportedly considering u.s. ambassador season rice for his next secretary of state. >> i love my job here at the united nations. >> but after she portrayed the benghazi consulate attack as a that spun out of control. some lawmakers say she doesn't deserve the job. >> i think susan rice has disqualified herself. >> tonight, controversy in the cabinet. >> and searching for more victims of super storm sandy. >> the national guard is going building to building and door to door checking on any victims of the storm who may still need help. >> jonathan hunt on parole w
in the new director c.i.a., general david petraeus. >> broadwell's book is released. may 2023, f.b.i. start to investigate harassing e-mails sent to jill kelley. one month later they discover the e-mail trail leads to paula broadwell. more e-mails. this time between general petraeus and paula broadwell. thursday, november 8th, two days after the election, general petraeus meets with president obama and offers his resignation. friday november 9th the president accepts his resignation and the word gets out. >> obviously the benghazi story has put a lot of pressure on senior intelligence officials. >> greta: fast forward to today, leon panetta announces the pentagon is investigating general john allen nominated to be the european command and commander of nato forces in europe. for now that nomination is on hold. general allen is accused of exchanging thousands of inappropriate e-mails with jill kelley. >> it is simply a fact that is the white house was not aware of a situation regarding general petraeus until wednesday. >> greta: time for congress to man up and get the facts. four americans ha
of the secrets of the fbi. fran, a really basic question here. if you just walk up to someone on a staff and say, hey, the general would like me to have classified documents, is that all there is to it? would they likely hand them over on that? >> no, but you have to understand the military culture. i visited petraeus in afghanistan on business and he walks into a briefing, he speaks to you about sensitive military matters, the staff sees that, there's a military culture and so, if you then ask for a document and suggest that the general has offered it to you in some way or sanctioned your having it, it's very difficult for a subordinate military member to either question the general's guest or the general himself about that. and so, it's not really clear, did petraeus actually direct that she could have these documents? did he communicate with his subordinate soldiers and command? we don't know that so it remains unclear about the circumstances. >> so, ron, if it's a staff member who sees this sort of relationship or thinks they see such a relationship and they hand over information, is just th

came out after the fbi started investigating paula broadwell for allegedly sending emails to another woman jill kellily a friend of david petraeus family. curing the fbi investigation, agents uncovered thousands of pages of emails between jill kelley and general john allen. he is the man who took over for general petraeus as the top commander in afghanistan. and he has denied that he and jill kelley are having an affair. it's a tangled web no doubt. the president had more to say about the whole thing during his news conference today. ed henry is there and is with us tonight on fox top story. she is a family friend, ed, the president didn't completely rule out the idea that somebody may have leaked some classified information. >> that's right. good evening, shep. the bottom line is the president didn't want to touch any of the salacious details of this for obvious reasons. he didn't want to kick general petraeus while he is down. he made very clear that he thinks general petraeus has had a long career of very exemplary service and noted that how it is ending is obviously not the way a
